"Mindframe And His Gen Of Artists Are The X-Factor"

Check out the interview with Mindframe exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.­­­­
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Mindframe: I am a talented artist with a specific view on life, and my own unique sound of hip hop, soul, and r&b fused. My music is raw and authentic. I am an amazing and entertaining rapper in the studio and on the stage. I am honing a voice and a sound of my own. I am an artist to watch in the years to come.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
Some of the creative things I do to promote my music is by focusing on being relatable while performing, having shout out contests, and I also send out my EPK using a mailing list to contacts I have built up over the years.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The main challenges I feel I will face or am currently facing now is myself. I feel we all are our own worst enemies. I just try to remain humble throughout the success and stumbles, and focus on the main goal and stay true to myself and continue to make great music.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music scene in Memphis, TN is great. It has been a huge contributor to music for quite some time and I don’t see it slowing down or stopping anytime soon. My city has a great amount of talent, but we are overlooked most times and not given our credit when it is due. Another thing I dislike is that as artists we don’t seem to network and be a team.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
Hopefully it turns away from the mumble rap aspect of it. I hope artists get back to taking pride in delivering a message and having dope lyrics with a dope beat and not surviving off the beat alone. I feel other artists along with myself can bring back that missing factor to the music game.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Stay true to you. Make your music and don’t be afraid to be unique and authentic. Keep grinding, keep praying, and realize that your net-worth is as big as your network.
What inspires you to write your next song?
What inspires me is just life itself. The ups, the downs, and the journey. My music is based off of real life experiences that I have been through or have seen myself. So as life goes on and changes, so does my music and my message.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
The first thing I do is get a topic, say a prayer, then take a few deep breaths, unwind (take a shot or two), play the beat over and over, and just start thinking about how I want to approach the song and then begin taking what comes from my mind and heart and putting it on paper.
What do you think makes a great song?
It has to be relatable and catchy. The lyrics have to be dope and delivered on the right beat. That is what makes a great song to me. Like as soon as it starts playing, it just grabs you, moves you, or just makes you react.

"IAA Single Of The Day: MINDFRAME@Thankgodimframe “STRANGE CHANGE” #IAAThePlug"

STRANGE CHANGE is the latest single from MINDFRAME, The rising artist from Memphis, TN! The origin of this song starts back to when I was overseas on deployment (Army) and dealing with a number of things. In the event of being away from people who are close to me, or who I assumed where close to me, started to take a toll. People started
switching up, acting funny, being distant, and the love I showed them
wasn’t being reciprocated and that’s pretty much how Strange Change
was born. It’s a warning message to others and myself on what to look
out for when dealing with people in your circle. The video is also a
parody to the hit Movie Get Out with my own twist! The video was shot
by @immaquelatevisions, and this is the first single and visual since
being back from overseas with the Army. I come direct with a
relatable, heartfelt, and real situation as I speak on unity issues,
double crossing from family and friends while on top of a smooth
soulful beat with dope lyrics as MINDFRAME usually does! - LeafThaPlug
